I was more shocked about your arrogance (I refer to your Minibus quotation). You wanted to leave the forum after dissing the COMPLETE forum, so I understood that part of your post as honest (it wasn't obviously as you are still posting) and I said goodbye to you.

Sometimes one needs not more than 30 seconds to know that he don't want to get any  further involved with some person. You belong into this categorie for me.

Therefore it is better for me to shut up when you post, otherwise some US Editors will start and delete my posts again.
It seems you have not entirely understood what a fan forum is about. It is not about praising the "master" all the time. If you think that his performance was great, please say it, but allow others to utter if they did not like it. No need to judge ALL members of a forum as CRUSTY, announcing to go, not before begging for some YouTube clips by the way, and then just.. don't do as promised.

And it's the other way around,  it's  Love Expresso, and I am not from Portugal. But who cares.

You will not read any further reaction from me. Ingrid once gave me a very good advice, and from today on I will follow that one.

he is not nervous. not really. believe me.  but he wants to speak in / with his songs, not so much in interviews.

i will see Mark on 31May in Salem. Looking forward. Indeed.

that´s all from me. promised.


Whenever I watch the Blue Moon Of Kentucky vid where Mark sings next to Scotty More, then pulls out a casual sweet solo flanked by Albert Lee, I realise this is a man who has never lacked confidence. :)
Hey, i`ve got a truffle dog - finally a song the ordinary man can relate too!

The more I listen to this, the better the performance seems to get!  Perhaps MilesAndrewColby has a point!  I still don't think he was pleased with it himself though, hence the (hidden) comment afterwards and it did lack a little but it'll come before the tour kicks-off.

vocals were a bit insecure, there was the odd lick missing, but considering everything, it was better then many other "first" performances before a tour...
i always hated dallas by the way. anyone wanna shoot me?
any Knopfler, Floyd or Dylan will do....

If I remember back to 2000, the Parkinson show was the first performance of WII and that was excellent IMO.

His vocals were really low here, almost like Quality Shoe at moments!

Good to see Gene Hackman as a guest too though.  ;)

His voice sounded pretty bad but maybe he had a cold or something, lots of bugs around at the moment.

Guitar wise, reminded me of shows from the 1980 / 1 tour in terms of tone and performance. A very direct and clean tone that accentuates any minor mishaps. Wercher 80 is a good comparible.

Without doubt the worst thing about this performance though was the miserable audience. One dude the camera picks out at the start actually looks pretty angry...maybe he's upset he's not playing in Russia this time round or objects to MKs political stance on certain matters. Yes that's a joke.

Lol, a good one. I guess nothing wrong there exept very different set up. 'They always let me get away with murder' Mark said, so...
It's like Mark trying to tune a guitar without tuner on Hay On Wye and ending up passing it to Saggers. Just messed up stage set-up.
